    I picked up a cheap new 17" LG yesterday to replace the screen on my spare PC.

    When I unpacked it I found you can rotate the screen to the vertical and it's also got a DVI input. Not too bad for £60. :)

    it looks like a standard dell monitor just rotated 90 degrees.
    i've a viewsonic that also rotates.

    not sure how you tell osx to rotate the output though, as this is possible in the windows/nvidia control panel.

    Checkout Samsung monitors. Many of them have this "portrait" feature

    Thanks guys, apparently the graphics card in my MBP (X1600) allows to rotate an external monitor into portrait view.
